Technical Analyst and Goalkeeper Coach
Hi! I'm Aidan - Welcome to the bit of my site where you can learn more about me! Over the years, I have found myself working at all levels of football/soccer as well as consulting in professional lacrosse. I've led the operations of teams, coached throughout youth levels, found myself attached to goalkeeper departments throughout Europe, and provided analysis and recruitment feedback to first-team staffs. When I'm not working in sport, I'm enjoying motorsport and dreaming of Scotland at the World Cup.
